Aegerion's Restructuring

In This Section

On May 20, 2019, Novelion Therapeutics announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary Aegerion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. entered into a plan funding agreement and a restructuring support agreement that will result in Aegerion selling 100% of its reorganized stock to, and becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of, Dublin-based Amryt Pharma Plc. The agreements, which will result in a recapitalization of Aegerion, are the result of the previously announced capital structure and strategic review by the Boards of Directors of Novelion and Aegerion and a broad marketing process. The recapitalization of Aegerion and a proposed Chapter 11 plan of reorganization has been approved by Aegerion’s board and approved and recommended by the independent restructuring committee of Aegerion’s board. Read full press release here.
